SF Global Emerging Markets Equity Total Return

The SF Global Emerging Markets Equity Total Return strategy invests principally in emerging markets securities that pay dividends. Because high-dividend-yielding stocks will tend to outperform low-dividend-yielding stocks over a full market cycle, each security in the portfolio pays a dividend and most pay a dividend significantly higher than the benchmark.

The team conducts extensive fundamental analysis to determine the sustainability of the dividend and the historic dividend growth. Companies that have shown a commitment to raising dividends and those that have the financial stability to continuing paying dividends are considered for inclusion in the portfolio. While every security in the portfolio pays a dividend, a portion of the portfolio focuses on lower-paying, higher-growth companies.
